Has the Conwy factory ever come up for discussion on this site? I have several pieces clearly covering quite a span of time. Anyone know much about them? Susie

The silence suggests there hasn't been a discussion before.

I don't really know much, although I feel I ought to as I was born a few miles from there in Wrexham and spent most of my childhood holidays on the North Wales coast. I remember Conway Castle from those times but not the pottery!

Anyhow, it seems to have been started by John Wynne Morris and his wife Carol in 1971 when it was located at 8/9 Castle Street. It disappeared in 1980 but restarted at Tyn-y-Coed Farm in Glan Conwy in 1986, and as far as I know is still going. They produce stoneware and porcelain.

Marks are C, CP or CAZ (Carol?). Pre-1980 marks include JWM or JM variations.

This from Fournier's potters marks book.

Any photos of your pieces?

[img][/img]Hi Gareth Happy
Did get a bit silent... so thanks for info.
For the love of me I cant find the earliest pre 80s piece which was a brownish honey coloured glaze and fairly small and I am pretty sure it was incised ca mark. But cant be sure.
Here are some 80s pieces
- The fifth one is not stamped by looks at home with these. Best Susie
I know my sister also bought some as well.

Conwy pottery?

Post by vanmann on Thu Jul 07, 2011 7:40 pm

Could this small pot be from Conwy Pottery? The mark appears to read -----WY POTTERY and Conwy was the only pottery I could think of ending in WY. None of the marks I have traced however look like this, all seem to include impressed CP.All thoughts gratefully received John

Could be tho, as it seems the cp mark is not the only one they used.

That vase is probably by Carol Wayne Adam.

DOES ANYONE RECOGNISE THIS MARK, Studio bowl, Conwy

Post by DIANE on Mon Sep 05, 2011 11:00 am

Another 20p boot find. There is a very feint signature on this but cannot make it out, anyone any ideas. Bit Greek looking so may just be a tourist piece

Is my bowl a piece by Joanna CONSTANTINIDIS

Post by Fred47 on Tue Feb 28, 2012 9:54 am

Hi
I have a bowl that was my mothers and looking on the internet at the impressed C stamp on the underside it seems to point to the potter Joanna CONSTANTINIDIS could anyone confirm this? and if there is any value to the item?

The mark does look very much like her mark but the two things that prevent me saying that the bowl is by her are: -

(i) I have never seen any work by her decorated in this way - she was noted for minimal decoration throughout her career.
(ii) Her mark on all the items that I recall is on the side of the piece just above the foot and not inside the footring.

This doesn't mean that it is not by her but I would need to see something similar with good provenance (i.e. having been bought directly from her) to be convinced.

Is this vase by Joanna Constantinides?

Post by ANNIEb on Tue Feb 28, 2012 5:59 pm

I have acquired this vase, glazed in very smooth semi matt, speckled blue green glaze deepening towards the base. There is an impressed narrow band of pattern near the top of the belly and double bands toward the bottom.
It is impressed with a C within a circle on the bottom of one side. Do I dare hope it is by Joanna Constantides?

Conwy

Post by Nik on Tue Jan 14, 2014 9:47 pm

9" jug, molded body with thickly applied floral decoration. 1930s?

There is a circular ink stamp to the base just over 1" in diameter: two concentric circles, I think I can just make out "Pottery" written between them (what a surprise!). The picture shows a darker line through the centre of the mark, but this lies on the seam, so it may just be dirt.

Could be. Unless otherwise marked, they have a rubber ink-stamped mark, just visible
on your jug, always feint, maybe it rubs or washes off.

Thanks - there is a very faint circular mark on the base vase, but as you say looks like it's worn off over the years.

Another style of mark which is not shown on this forum or in Yates-Owen-Fournier-Hazlewood. This mark is simply impressed 'CONWY'.
Stoneware coffee pot or water jug which is 27.5cm tall and when filled would require "Charles Atlas" to lift it.

Conwy Pottery Mug and I think the jug is Conwy, they happened to be in the same box of mixed pottery. Both have a background of a brown/pinkish colour, but slightly different flower designs.
The mug has 'Conwy Pottery' stamp on the base and 'Cp' stamped at the base of the handle. The jug has no marks.
